Nope. The EVGA FTW has a custom PCB. The normal EVGA ACX 3.0 however used a refrence PCB, same as founders thus would work.

So i kinda have to use the gtx 1080 founders edition for it to work?

Not the founders edition specifically, any card that uses a refrence PCB. There are few cards that fit the bill including founders cooler design, but the EVGA ACX 3.0 also uses the same reference PCB so would work.

Sorry if this sounds noob but is there anywhere that tells me if its reference pcb or not? When i google it, the search doesnt enlighten me in anyway.

I plan to use thermaltake for my liquid cooling and i just want to make all my blocks the same brand to prevent any unforseen issues
